Change In Asylum Policy Allows Some Migrants To Wait In U.S.
"Do you have a humane immigration policy that does not encourage illegal immigration. President Biden is grappling with just that question. Biden is already facing criticism over decisions to deport migrants and open a temporary shelter at the border as he seeks to reverse the draconian policies of his predecessor to talk more about the challenges ahead is Doris Meissner. She is a senior fellow and director at the Migration Policy Institute. Hello. Hello. The Washington Post obtained an email from immigration and Customs enforcement, saying we need to prepare for border surges. Now, what do you make of that? I mean, what do you make of reports that there will be a surge of immigrants trying to cross the border now that there's a president Biden and not a president Trump I think there's no surprise that The numbers of people coming are increasing because it is very clear that the Biden administration is committed to reversing the policies of the last administration and to making it be possible for migrants who are claiming asylum and looking for protection to actually have their cases be heard. But of course, the issue then becomes a real difficult one for managing those numbers and putting the changes in place without Getting into an emergency situation. Yeah. I mean, does this administration have sort of the tools to deal with the surge? I mean, there's already concerns about opening Temporary shelters, especially for young migrants and range migrant Children. Well, there does have to be an infrastructure at the border for processing people, and so the opening of shelters Should be seen as a positive sign because you don't want to have AH humanitarian crisis on the border where people have no place to go, which is what we did see two years ago when the Trump administration was trying to keep people out. Are you envisioning Biden going back to the very heavily criticized under trump tactic of what was called catch and release that if you had unauthorized entries, you would process the migrants and then allow them into the community with the hopes that they would show up to a court date. I mean, that was virtually stopped under President Trump has a way of Dissuading people from crossing the border. What the Biden administration is envisioning is having people be able to have their case is heard but heard promptly the difficulty with the way in which this has been handled in the past. Is that the backlogs in the immigration courts are so long that people are waiting in the country for years before their cases get hurt, And that, of course, does lead to misuse of the system. And that does invite Future migration. So what the administration needs to put in place is a system where people are able to file their claims are able to get legal representation. Get a prompt decision. Those who are eligible to stay can stay. Those who are not do need to be returned. And I think that this connects also to the Biden administration's vision of working more aggressively, much more aggressively with the countries in the region because the administration recognizes that some people are eligible for asylum. Some people are not eligible for asylum. And for those people who are not eligible for asylum, the question is returning in a humane fashion connecting people with services in their country. Those services need to be built. There needs to be much more assistance and engagement with the governments in the region to reduce corruption to reduce violence. Very Circumstances that the people are fleeing, which are always a mixture of economic circumstances, more and more possibly climate problems that have ravaged these countries. And and governance. That sounds like a lot of what President Obama did with mixed success, and President Trump actually did work closely with Mexican and Central American governments. He applied. To stick more than the carrot. He forge deals so that they could enforce their own borders and curb migration. Among other measures. There is a sense that what President Trump did actually, if your goal is to reduce migration, unauthorized crossings of the border, it worked. There's no question that what President Trump did work. The issue is at what cost at what price and that's the price that has had to do with our values as a country with our laws as a country, and so the difficulty for the Biden administration is to develop a system at the border so that these decisions can be made promptly. It's the years and years of waiting That are the ultimate breakdown in the system that needs to be solved.

Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock
"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.
Fanne Foxe, ‘Argentine Firecracker’ at center of Washington, D.C. sex scandal, dies at 84
"Age, the name Fanny Fox means something. The one time stripper gained insane notoriety after she jumped into the tidal basin on an October night in 1974. She was in a gown the car she'd been in Had been pulled over by police and the man she was with made the story even bigger. He was Congressman Wilbur Mills, a Bible Belt politician who also led the powerful House Ways and Means Committee. That night, assured Fanny Fox his place in the annals of political scandals. And we've just learned today that Fox died recently at the age of 84. Let's learn more about her role in D. C History with Washington Post obituary editor Adam Bernstein. Hey, Adam, Thanks so much for being with us. And at this point, most people in Washington probably don't know anything about Fanny Fox, who was she It's a good question. Thank you so much for having me on well. The reason she was such a big name here is because of her involvement. As you said with Wilber Mills. He was the some have said the second most powerful man in Washington on Lee. We superseded by the president sort of it in the early 19 seventies, Wilbur Mills was chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, which controls a lot of money, and he had been in Congress for many decades. By that point, so he had this reputation of Um, accumulated reputation for food for power. And he also was from Arkansas, the Bible belt, and he had also cultivated this reputation as a as a workaholic. A grind. Um, a man of utter rectitude. And so what happened was, uh, you know, nothing would have been revealed of this affair, at least publicly. Except for this bizarre episode is you mentioned at the Washington the title based Mackenzie's senior The Jefferson Memorial. And on October 7 1950 74 He who? Wilbur Mills, who had been seeing Fanny Fox at her burlesque, Cole, You're in D. C. I was with her one night two in the morning and they get into this weird accident near the at the Tidal Basin. Basically, they're in a car without lights on the police. See them, They stopped him. And Fanny Fox. Or, you know, on impulse jumps out of the car and into the title base, And she starts you know, wrestling with the policeman who goes in after her. It's discovered that her face is all batter that Mills who were these Coke bottle glasses, His glasses are smashed. And is reeking of alcohol, and the TV crew happened to be nearby as well. So it's just perfect storm of of of politics and media, and this is right at the time of Watergate as well. So everybody was looking for the next scandal. So what ultimately happened to Wilbur Mills? Then what was the code on Fanny Fox? Good question. So Wilbur Mills survives. Oddly enough, the next election he goes, He goes back to Arkansas and sort of in this folksy manner tries to play it off. You know, his famous quote at the time is One should never drink champagne with a foreigner that that's the lesson he took away from him. And and you know, weirdly enough. He survived with his wife. She seems to back in publicly. But you know, right after winning the election and seemingly surviving by by a thread appears on her, appears with Fanny Fox again on stage in Boston, Fanny Fox and parlayed all the publicity into this lucrative career on the burlesque circuit. And he goes on stage. It's It's just terrible embarrassment captured on TV of all places again, and his career is them finished. He I think he resigns. He spends it goes into recovery. Disgraced from public office, but then spend the rest of his life. He lived a to least another 15 20 years, basically helping other recovering addicts like himself. Fanny Fox have Ah Less of Ah, a much harder time of it. She Prospers for a couple years winds up down in Florida. I couldn't find out that much about the family didn't want to cooperate, but I was able to look up various records. She she got a couple of all things degrees. Including one you know, in marine science of all. Wow. And but I couldn't figure out I couldn't figure out what she did with her time. Her lawyer didn't say your family wouldn't talk. Um I don't know. She had jobs or just How she struggled by and we will just have to live that mystery. Continue, Adam, because our time is up, though, clearly we could talk about this for a very long time. Thanks So much for being with us. Thanks. That's

To give a second statement to the judge about how she had been affected as a crime victim. Asked Lauren to read our statement from the court transcript.

It blows my mind that Mr crews didn't have to register as a sex offender. It is even more insane to me that he hasn't taken the sex offender treatment assessment that was rightfully included in his sentence. This man said himself that he's sick and he told you that he has a problem. Why. Don't you take his word for it? I certainly do. judge Morrison apologized to Lauren. That day he said it was wrong to hold a hearing without her knowledge. And he changed his mind. He put crews back on supervised probation and he ordered the Probation Agency to fix their mistakes in the case. Here's what the judge said to Lauren. Quote I've been adjudged now for thirty seven years and I don't remember ever having heard a more eloquent or forceful articulation of what it was like to be a victim in a case like this then the one that you've just rendered. And I'm extremely grateful to you for having the courage to come forward and say the things that you've just said. And I apologize to you that the system didn't enable you to be here either yourself or with your lawyer at the time that you had a right to be. I can only say to you I did not willfully violate your rights. We just weren't paying attention. After all of this, I just kept coming back to Lawrence decision to hand out those fliers. I ask her why she did it. All, with the truth. And I did it to give myself. A Safe Environment Levin. Did you feel better after doing it. Better like especially relative term. I felt better knowing that wasn't going to see him walk past the Salon, I felt better knowing that like I wasn't. GonNa again eat at a restaurant where he works without knowing it. I felt better that people refuse to accept this type of behavior and stood with me. But it wasn't like I just felt better. One of the things that especially in the aftermath of the metoo movement, a lot of these stories are now looking at what we call the systems you know that enabled this type of behavior for years and you and I talked about this a lot but. When you look back at this case, how do you look at the system? You know did the system fail you? Yeah. The system failed me. System failed my community, the system failed us. This system failed him. Failed. I'm sure that I'm not the only person that this has been hard for. And I, think that a lot of ways. This is immediate a lot harder. Story was published in The Washington Post in early twenty. Nineteen. It was co authored by reporter Mara Jesus and it was titled the WHO Attacked Me Works in your kitchen. Victim of serial groper took justice into her own hands. Throughout that day and the following days we got a lot of emails and comments from readers. They were reaching out to say why the story stuck with them people from all over the world were telling us that they felt really connected to. Lauren and that they even felt inspired by her. They also had a lot of opinions about Lauren and what she did whether it was right or whether it was wrong or if she had even gone too far. People were also really upset about DC's criminal justice system. They were mad at the prosecutors for charging these crimes as misdemeanors they were mad at the probation officers and they were mad at the judge forgiving ten day jail sentence to a man who attacked six women. So after the story published and after I answered as many emails and comments as I could I moved on to the next story and it had nothing to do with sexual assault. I thought I was done with these types of stories for a while. And then on one Saturday evening in February of Twenty nineteen. I got an email. It read hi Amy. My name is Carol and I have some information that may be pertinent to your recent article. It is very sensitive information for me implicating person in your story. I appreciate your reporting and the work you do around this issue..

She was gripped by these panic attacks that really started to disrupt her work life and social life. She tried to channel the anger and disappointment into more positive. She turned to advocacy work. And she organized a march for other sexual assault survivors in DC. But it was hard to pretend like things were back to normal for Lauren. Especially because after the attacks cruises career kind of took off. He got a new job at led Zeppelin Matt, which was one of the hottest restaurants in town. And this restaurant happened to be just a few blocks away from Lawrence, Salon? He was unavoidable. She saw me at a bar. She saw him outside of her apartment. Once when she was cutting hair, she even saw him walk by the Salon Window. Wasn't okay with me like him being so close like. How am I supposed to live like? How am I supposed to like just live my life? She was terrified. She needed some feeling of security. Some reassurance that someone somewhere was watching him. He was supposed to be on supervised probation. So, she went to the court website. She found the case docket and she saw a note that there have been a recent hearing hearing in her case and no one had told her about it. which is actually a violation of her rights as a crime victim.

But it never happened. Instead of any meaningful attempts at rehabilitation, it seemed as if he monitored like a low level drug offender. Judge Morrison said that despite all of this failures, the chef have been on pretty good behavior and really didn't need to be monitored any longer. So he moved cruise to unsupervised probation. At.

"Time. Okay Thank you and try not to. Turn out to talk with your hands and like hit the table. If, you've been listening to post reports for a long time. You might remember a story we did almost two years ago. It was about a woman in DC who was sexually assaulted and how she took matters into her own hands after the justice system failed her. We'll you start with just saying who you are and what you do at the Post my name is Amy Britain and I'm an investigative reporter. After post reporting, she found out that the story didn't end where she thought. It did in fact, it started her and our producer Rena Florez on reporting journey that culminated in a whole new series it's called Canary The Washington Post investigates and all seven episodes are out today Just a warning, this episode contains explicit language and descriptions of sexual assault. One day back in June of two, thousand seventeen, a young woman walked up and down a bustling street in Washington DC. She was carrying with her a stack of paper flyers that she passed out in bars and restaurants and cafes. But these fliers they were unusual. They weren't advertisements were lost him film posters. Instead they had screen shots of something called a case docket. It's like a timeline of the major events of Criminal Court case, and it has the names of judges and lawyers and defendants. This docket showed that a man pleaded guilty to charges of sexual abuse. There were several photos of him and at the top of the fires and bright red capital letters it said. This man has assaulted six women in DC. These flyers were a warning? The woman who handed them out At the time, she didn't want her identity to be known. She was victim. But she was a lot more than that. And Her story started me on a reporting journey that has lasted for nearly three years. A story that has played out in the middle of a larger cultural reckoning..

"To be involved in this, you're talking about one of the most like terrible people of the last, however long you to go last decade right as far as like what he was accused of, and now you're attaching that to this. All of that was like holy unfair, and again the merits of the article alone there there we need to talk about the systematic harassment, sexual harassment and sexism that exists in these spaces. Spaces but damn if they didn't mess up the process by letting people spin on it for a couple of days, and the reporters who put out like Yo Yo dog I'm hearing some stuff. It's not good like it really was problematic I know and I hate that part because I think twitter as great as it is can be a detriment. Social Media in general can be a detriment and I don't want to. Over hyped isn't the the proper word for it because that diminishes what happened to these women in this article, which is horrible, and they shouldn't have had to have dealt with that on a day to day basis, and they shouldn't be crying in the bathroom at lunch. Break with others who are going through the same thing, and they shouldn't have to be fending off sexual advance after sexual advance via text message. In fear of trying to keep their job, but at the same time you're point like you're reading things on twitter like is he actually a friend of Jeffrey Epstein? was he a part of that circle? That's crazy and that's unfair that so many people's name got dragged through the mud because people were just creating things to create it while we waited and that's that's the detriment of social media and I hate that for some people who yesterday and the day before probably were days of hell for them of wondering. What is this Washington? Post expose GONNA. Be About am I included. I have no idea I mean the whole thing I thought. Wasn't good. I didn't think it looked good from the optics I, thought that it was handled poorly to say the least and I think a lot of people were fueling the handling of it, just from spouting off on their twitter, and that to me was unfair for a lot of people, and it minimized ultimately and I. Don't think he asked intention at all in ended up minimizing the story, because it couldn't live up to the expectations that people had created in their mind. It's kind of like when you read a book and you picture who plays the main characters in your head, and then that gets turned into a movie and you're like no man that's. Like that's not how it went down in my head, and it can't ever live up to the story you created in your brain, and the problem is. This is already an issue Katie as I'm sure you well know as many of our female colleagues in this space know that already gets minimized or already told relax. You're no fun. Just go justin joke yeah. Don't rock the boat. Oh I thought you were. Were Cooler than that, and then you're sitting there, questioning your own judgment going and my being gaslight right now or maybe I am overly sensitive. Maybe this is just how it goes. Hey, I want to be accepted in the space. Maybe I do need to just go along and like if you think that that's not something happens regularly for women in the space. Just scroll through twitter man just scroll through twitter. Twenty four hours and look at all the women who have identified with what those fifteen women talked about in the Washington Post piece. We are going to be joined by Liz. Clark of the Washington Post, one of the two articles along with will hobson who put together this expose on the rampant sexual harassment in the Washington football franchise offices as Katie alluded to many of the people who have been singled out and named the peace have since been fired or left I believe the play by play guy that you mentioned announced yesterday that he was quote unquote retiring from the team. How convenient what it's been! A good run is what he said. What claiming I'm? Sure he's got many many other things that he'll be focusing his attention on now. So yeah we're going to talk more about this on the Dan Le Batard show. We have a lot of other things to get to ESPN released list of the best arena height music. and. We have some problems with it.

Should I guarantee mistakes right off the bat just to be my best Stugatz today JEN do. Absolutely I. Feel like it makes the audience and the listeners feel like we get the show 'cause. That's a big thing here, right? Oh, it's a huge thing I learned that the hard way I. Saw I saw I saw your approval ratings. Now you have. To have a better approval rating than I had with Peter Burns it just put it that way. We got a pretty stack show for everybody out. There at lots of things to talk about. We're one week away from the MLB. Season July. Thirtieth is the start of the NBA season. NHL Season starts on August first. We're going to hear from Emily Kaplan. ARE ESPN NHL reporter a little bit? Bit later in the show there was a mind blowing expose sports illustrated, put out about former NFL Kabeer Bajour via Mila and if you haven't gotten a chance to read it, it's all over twitter three parts a read. You've got to really invest some time into it. Maybe take your phone into the bathroom with you, because I know that you're going to spend a lot of time in there. You might get through appeaser to. And the author of that Kaelin Taylor is GonNa. Join US later in the show as well. I mean. This is a deep dive into some very bizarre stuff, so I'd love to hear the process. She went through for that article. We're also going to hear from Liz Clark of the Washington Post she one of the authors of that expose. The scandal story that broke yesterday that everyone was waiting for from dream job to nightmare about more than a dozen women who alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse by former team employees. In The Washington football franchise so obviously. That was something that dominated talk last night. As the article dropped around. What five PM, Eastern Time Katie. What was your reaction to that story? So I'll be curious to see what you think of this, and so on Tuesday. Right was the initial date that it was supposed to drop. The Washington Post said they had. You Know Earth shattering information that was going to be bigger news than the Washington redskins deciding to change their names, so I thought Oh my gosh, what is GonNa? Come out about the Washington redskins because this is going to be huge. And then they pushed it back to Thursday, and all of this was circulating around Daniel Snyder specifically. Right Daniel Snyder. This is going to be damning information about Daniel Snyder and say what you want about the guy. No, he doesn't have a lot of fans in his corner, and supporters. I think the Internet sometimes is a detriment. Jen because I think over hyped what was supposed to come out and I'm not diminishing the horrify. Items that were explained in this in detail in this expose of what women went through them, but I have to be honest. I was expecting Daniel Snyder to be a part of those allegations personally jen and when he wasn't. For all the people who said this is going to be information leading up that he is going to make him half to sell the team. He's not gonNA. have any other option than selling the team when I read the article twice I don't know if it's the necessary information. To. Make enforce. Daniel Snyder to actually have to sell it because he wasn't personally included in the allegations now what went on in the culture? The cultures messed up and the culture needs to change without a doubt and what happened to those women when they were going to do their jobs and the things that they had to think about while trying to perform and make sales. That's awful to me and it seems like they had a lot of bad eggs. That thought that kind of. Activity and that inappropriate behavior was condoned I'm glad they got rid of a couple of those people and they decided to leave Alex Santos. Richard Man being one Larry Michael the voice of the Redskins for so long, but I, don't know Jin and I'm curious to hear what you think if that's the kind of allegations, because he's personally included in them to force him to sell the Washington redskins. I! Think you make a great point in that. The article doesn't exist in a vacuum, right. It didn't exist Solo. It wasn't by itself. It was affected by all of the things you mentioned. which was this idea? It's been affected by the fact that this team has been in the news recently for being you know having this racial nickname and pressure to change it and the sponsors that have pulled their support of the team. If they didn't change the name like all of that was in there as well, it's not as though this was just like arbitrary team that no one. One was thinking about that. No one was talking about that hadn't been accused already of having a questionable culture right so then like you said it's supposed to drop early and people are like. When's it coming? We're all like salivating. Because we love scandal. We love the dirty details. We love like reading all of that like salacious stuff and the problem with that is exactly what you said when we weren't fed it away when it didn't come when we wanted to write this. Like immediate gratification society that we live in I, want it now. Give it to me right now. Then we were able to imagine and create ideas about what it could be right and so like. That was the biggest issue I saw. Leading into the release of this piece, which as you state has merits all on his own. It's a topic that needs to be discussed. It's obviously something that is a problem in the sports industry and beyond, but it was more problematic that people were hypothesizing, and like guessing as to what it was about, I saw some of our colleagues, names and former colleagues names, being dragged through the mud, like completely unfairly as people were trying to speculate if they were involved in this, you know titillating scandal like that's not right I saw mentioning of like of Epstein like..

J. disagreement a service about one of horror which is central conclusions on the origins of the rush investigation discord could be the prelude to a major Frasier within financial law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign bar has not been swayed by horror which is rationale for concluding that the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July thirty first twenty sixteen my friends this is the Achilles heel of the whole situation what have I been saying to you now for years mother didn't even touch that's why how did this whole thing get started where did this come from we're to believe it they just happen to have people near Papadopoulos but Papadopoulos happen to say thing again please what idiots they had set up to get Papadopoulos before this conversation he allegedly had with Downer in a bar in the U. K. please Papa doc is running for Congress by the way yes that's what they they believe that they want us to believe that bar knows this is going to be the critical question there will be all this information presented in people who are very invested in this will tell you they will feign stupidity they'll fan an abject lack of judgment and they will say to you that the Russia collusion investigation was a duly predicated investigation from the start meeting that there was something other than political malice as the real motivation for looking into all of this bars going to look at this according this report I believe in say not so fast going to investigate a presidential campaign based on what a very low level eight visor remember of the campaign says to a guy in a bar in the U.

"Bongino go today all right Joe partly so there is a according to The Washington Post and listen folks. I am applying the Bongino rule. This came out last night. I am waiting before I determine the authenticity of this piece and how how much of it is fake news. How much is propaganda? And how much of it is real. But the genesis of this Washington Post piece. Is this the gist of initiate. Say precision definitely matters here is that there's a fight brewing in the DOJ between the attorney. General Bill Bar. And the Inspector General. Michael Horowitz who is is investigating the FBI's behavior in the spying scandal on Donald Trump and the gist of it is that bar believes the FBI investigation wasn't predicated correctly. In other words they shouldn't have been spying. On trump and Horowitz. This is according to the Washington Post nine Horowitz's report they're suggesting suggests that the FBI investigation was was pretty was predicated. In other words. They may have screwed things up the fact patterns ugly but the FBI had enough information to start this. That is not true. They did not have enough information to start this. Check out the piece of listen. I put this up in the show notes. I'm hesitant to do it but it's important because this is one of those stories that even no excuse me it's The Washington Post it's A. You should read it because there are some nuggets notice that the author is one of the spy gate media players Devlin Barrett as well Who shows up in the text came the headline of the pieces? Washington Post Bar disputes key. Inspector General Finding about FBI's Russia investigation. What is going on here again? The DOJ this conflict is barred does not believe according to this piece that the spying operation on on the FBI the FBI was conducting was properly predicated based on a set of facts that would indicate spying necessary. Apparently according to the GEE report suggests otherwise now a couple of things here. Let's go right to the report and read their works. Why can explain to you? What's really going on and again why you haven't been wasting your time here for two years? Check this out from the Washington Post piece quote Attorney General Bill Bars privately. Contended that Horowitz. The I G does not have enough information to to reach the conclusion that the FBI had enough details in hand at the time to justify opening such a probe. So this is a bombshell. Arielle statement in and of itself. Hold like that up there. So we're suggesting that bar saying listen you don't know enough to conclude that the F. B. I. was appropriately spying on Donald trump. They go on and the Washington Post piece Barr argues that other. US agencies agencies such as the C. A. May hold significant information. Joe that could alter Horowitz this conclusion Asian on that point according to people familiar with the matter who spoken the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. What.

"Questions from The Washington Post that have yet to be answered again we don't know Giuliani's really don't know the lady's role we don't know whether trump directly ordered any of this Washington post in jest if you will he was acting on his own volition his motives are unclear we know that two of his business associates were recently indicted on campaign finance charges had ties Ukraine and see department officials have testified they may feel threatened by anti corruption efforts US diplomats were leading again some Ukrainian officials okay well let's say in most circumstance let's say that there is an accusation made that these Ukrainian officials were trying to make time with the trump administration by using Giuliani as a final for information and they're finally damaging information about Biden's make you crane about corruption vigilante to trump does that implicate trump or trump motive not really it mostly raises questions about Giuliani a fourth question is did you crane know why its military a noble office meeting were being withheld well in order for them to know that presumably they would have to coordinate directly with trump so even answering this question doesn't answer the fundamental question which is what was trumped motive what was from content I was in a Gordon someone was misinterpreting front than anyone over Ukraine and said we want Biden well without showing that someone was told by trump to go get Biden maybe that someone who is acting on his own after the fight met because he is trying to forecast the feelings of the president of the United States The Washington Post suggests someone testified he told the Ukrainians they were likely to get their eight release when they announced an investigation into Democrats again likely to get there a release means that he's speculating acting US ambassador in Ukraine bill Taylor was in close contact with the Iranians he testified they knew what was being asked of them and they didn't want to do it he said I think it was becoming clear to Ukrainian set to get this meeting they wanted they have to commit to pursuing these investigations what do you create new is being forced into something will go a long way to confirm a quid pro quo but Democrats are actually backing off of this proposition because they don't like the idea they're gonna have to actually prove the elements of bribery instead they think that the president's attempts to simply hold back the taxpayer aid for unspecified reasons could theoretically be enough Jim Himes Democrat of Connecticut said extortionate require you give me this I'll give you that kind of quid pro quo it simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don't have a right to okay but you have an established what exactly he doesn't have a right to yet or that he was a plain muscle in order to get that thing if I if I tell you that I'm not going to pay you until you give me that hamburger that's all the free market transaction if I tell you I'm not gonna pay you into the off my wife that is a very different sort of transaction so we actually have to determine what kind of transaction this is and the question is really the one which is why did trump with all the in the first place and what was the point what was drums issue would be great and again I think that the answer here is kind of obvious right I don't think that from there's been hiding the ball trump thanks that Ukraine is hiding the crowd strike server ratings are hiding hello Sir I don't know why barrel I can read too much into war to put together some weird conspiracy theory and and now he's been out there proclaiming that somewhere buried in the forest in Kiev is is some hello recalling server they took it from a bathroom they these fluid over to Kiev they took it out of the force and they buried it under a dosha or something it's like it's but I don't I don't get it okay but that was from the police he also believes correctly view crayons were working at the Hillary Clinton campaign twenty sixteen that part is actually true it was reported by political also he believes in something corrupt is going on with Teresa and biting and he believes that that impacted the twenty sixteen election because obviously if Ukrainians were working hand in glove the Obama administration get him and covering up for the mines as a problem my soul is so is all of those things are any of those beliefs wrong sure I think the crowd's writing is completely unsubstantiated thing the hunter Biden Joe Biden thing so far does not have proper evidence actually substantiate the allegations but is it illegal or impeachable for the president to want things that he wants investigate investigated not necessarily may not really not much what you're talking about is the president really attempting to leverage American foreign aid on behalf of his electoral results purely purely not as a side effect of foreign policy purely because he wanted Biden out and that part I honestly like I don't actually see that in terms activity I am trying to people I believe me when I said is obviously then you shouldn't Randy because vectors I am a conservative yeah I'm a Republican but the fact is I don't actually see objectively the trump has ever had the level of internet is there to do anything but I don't think he's ever had the level of intent to putting to eat a hamburger I think it is half accident when you to him well I I really I guess the idea here is that from like a laser beam focused in on Joe Biden then he was like I'm a withhold military aid to get Joe Biden is Joe Biden is just so dangerous and I've been following mysteries nothing like a hawk or alternatively he has thoughts and he vomits that thoughts whenever he is asked about a particular topic which one sounds more like come to you thought vomit trump for like a laser beam forty chassis planning out every move in the valleys admiral Thrawn from the from the
